Each of McCarthy Surname DNA Project Pedigrees should identify the Earliest Ancestor and the researcher.   By correlating test results and pedigrees, each family can identify their genetic heritage and related families.

If you are a member of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, click here to send your pedigree by email to the Project Administrator.   The pedigree will then be posted on the Patriarchs Page.

If you are not a member of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the McCarthy Surname DNA Project Pedigree Forum by clicking on the link “Forum” above.
